Events

We hold monthly indoor meetings between September and April and also run a series of FREE local guided walks - usually on the weekend following our meetings. These walks usually last between two and three hours at a very leisurely 'birdwatching pace'. You do not need to be a member of the RSPB to join us on our events, and birdwatching experience is not necessary. If you have any questions please call 01274 582078 or e-mail abrspb@blueyonder.co.uk
